preschool education. everybody looked the same. everybody acted the same. everybody was expected to learn in the same way. woman: go, guys, go! hendrick: but times have changed. now we live in a diverse, multicultural, multiethnic world. and as teachers, we have a tremendous responsibility to not only teach multiculturally but, whenever we can, to practice it in our own classroom. i'm joanne hendrick, author of the whole child and your guide to this video series. in this program, we're going to look at the ways in which we can help by providing, when we can, multicultural and non-sexist education for the children in our care. we'll see children and teachers in action from a number of early childhood programs, family daycare homes, head start, university-based schools, and private infant centers and preschools. we'll hear teachers discuss some of the typical problems they face and their solutions when trying to create a respectful, open environment for all their children and families. children like to feel good about themselves. they enjoy the feeling of not only knowing who they are but a
of research, development and higher education. most new chinese cars are now made here. migrants from the interior flock to make new lives here. but the surge in growth is relatively recent. until 1991, shanghai was stymied. why was it held back, and how did it boom? some of the answers may be found in china's historical geography, which colors its outlook toward foreigners. for centuries, the threat came over land, from the north and west. mongols and manchus frequently raided, and often ruled, chinese society. more recently, the invaders came by sea. following a victory in the opium wars, the british won concessions in several chinese ports, including shanghai in 1843. shanghai reached t zenith of its colonial power in the early 20th century. the outside presence can still be seen. the old foreign trading houses occupy prime positions on the waterfront strip called "the bund," a reference to german authority. ( machine gun fire ) ( explosion ) narrator: in 1937, japan invaded shanghai. its status as a trading city was virtually destroyed by the time chinese nationalists were driven

"interface region" means... okay, means we have... silicon valley is a socioeconomic space, and china is another one. okay, and taiwan just overlapped these two regions. narrator: in this triangular space connecting silicon valley, taiwan and china lies the prospect of a mutually beneficial exchange of ideas and know-how. and taiwanese firms are uniquely qualified to facilitate that exchange. hsu: we have a long experience of business transaction with s
people and having him educate them, a broad level of education - from the sciences to biology to psychology to theory, religious dogmas, historical information, science - the whole spectrum. and teaching it in such a way that it was never above their heads, and allowing them, then, to apply that knowledge in disciplines that he taught them, and he showed them that god does in fact live in them. so they're called masters - they're mastering their humanity, for the sake of the divine greatness, and celebrating life on a new level, a new understanding. and all of that, as we sit here today, has all been worth living through, finding my own truth, knowing what i know, and willing to live it, no matter what, has evolved me tremendously. and now in reflection, i look back and see that without adversity, we never know our own strength. >> i want to tell you that i love you - >> and we love you. >> - and that you are worth loving indeed, and for you to also understand, coming from social consciousness, for you to re-remember as it were, that your god loves you more than all else, for
is georgia's largest african american museum. our mission is to educate people about african american art, history, and culture, and we do this in a lot of different ways. but for me, beverly buchanan's show of shacks, which we've entitled "coming home," is one of the best ways we've ever done this. beverly has strong macon connections. and i think a lot of the groundwork for these shacks came to her while she was living in our community. and she's just added a figure, a large-scale, monumental figure, to onef the pieces. and i think that's an exciting and significant change. the name of the piece is called "harriet's shack," and it's harriet tubman, who the museum is named for. we honor her as a woman of strength and courage, and i think beverly does too by making her two stories tall and this giant woman that is conveying power and courage. but also there are flowers all over her dress, and she looks like she's someone you'd want to get to know. these are places that black and white, rich and poor, we all see and understand. these pieces just, i mean, they seem to dance. the colors, the
made a fortune consolidating railways and was reputed to be the richest man in the south. well-educated, well-traveled, cultivated, walters, like morgan, had a taste for precious objects. nevertheless, he felt it was important to include a raphael in his collection. in 1901 walters acquired the madonna of the candelabra, believed to be at least partly by the master's own hand. scholars attribute the virgin and child to raphael and the angels to an assistant. walters proudly displayed his madonna in a gallery which he built adjacent to the family house in baltimore. owning a raphael had a significance beyond that of acquiring a beautiful work of art. he was the only artist whose prestige had endured all changes of taste and fashion. the next raphael acquisition marked the coming-of-age of america as a nation of collectors. the small cowper madonna, which mrs. gardner had coveted, was sold to the wideners in 1914 for the highest price that had ever been paid for a painting. outside philadelphia, the wideners built one of the grandest estates of the gilded age. re, they lived the life of a

to climb back up again in terms of women drinking while they're pregnant. it's the more highly educated, the more high income, typically white women who appear to be escalating their alcohol use. i think, in part, folks feel very comfortable that this problem was addressed and successfully licked back in the 80's and that it's something we can move on away from at this point. and that is absolutely not the case. smoking also increases the risk of premature delivery and low birth weight. in fact, babies whose mothers smoke are at greater risk for sudden infant death syndrome. calvin john hobel: sometimes it's hard to look at just the effect of smoking by itself, because smoking women have other habits that compound the effect of smoking. for example, nutrition. women who smoke tend to have poor nutrition. they may also be the person who's not taking their vitamins so they have a folic acid deficiency. so when you combine poor nutrition and not taking adequate vitamins, then in combination, that can lead to more serious problems. women often become more health conscious when they become p
